PERSIAN KASHAN PICTORIAL H K WOOL RUNNER 2'6" x 10'

placeholder
Lot 1064A
APPROX. 45-65 YR OLD PERSIAN KASHAN PICTORIAL HAND KNOTTED WOOL RUNNER, 2'6" x 10': This rug has an unusual pictorial format that starts with a blue sky with clouds over a tall waterfall that becomes a river that flows the length of the runner. On islands or outcroppings of land on either side are found a variety of animals from all over the world. These include a polar bear, penguins, elephants, giraffes, monkeys, a lion, tiger, and leopard and more. The animal's images were probably derived from photos or books and their scale of size doesn't match the true size of the animals, but it adds to the charm of the rug.

Condition

Condition is good for its age but with some visible shading and stains.
